Physical Education


"Don't measure yourself by what you have accomplished, but by what you should have accomplished with your ability." – John Wooden


If you are physically active, “you can achieve so many amazing goals and get such amazing opportunities, if you work hard and apply yourself to things.”  – Dina Asher-Smith


In accordance with the National Curriculum, our Physical Education at ASJ will inspire all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically demanding activities. It should provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.

We aim to ensure that all pupils:

  • develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities
  • are physically active for sustained periods of time
  • engage in competitive sports and activities
  • lead healthy, active lives

Inspired by the Lioness' Euro 2022 win, we have started a girls' football club.  We normally do mixed sports activities, but following workshops organised by 'Totally RUNable' girls informed us that they would enjoy playing football without the boys (given they felt many boys were more confident and competitive when playing football).  As a result, this new football club has massively boosted girls' participation and enjoyment.

We feel very fortunate to have such generous outdoor facilities: 3 playgrounds, a sizeable field, an adventure playground, 2 table tennis tables, an outdoor classroom, woodland and a sheltered conservation area.  To encourage children to be as active and engaged as possible in being physically active, we have a range of playground equipment for them to use, in order to make the most of all that space.
